Palisade Risk & Decision Analysis Conference
Draws Record Attendance

17 November 2008, Ithaca, NY - Palisade’s Risk & Decision Analysis Conference was held in New York City on November 13 and 14 and drew over 150 practitioners and decision-makers from a broad spectrum of industries.  The event was held at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson, overlooking lower Manhattan.  Presentations and discussions touched on topics such as the subprime mortgage crisis, modeling flu pandemics, project risk management, and energy demand planning.  The keynote was delivered by Harvard School of Public Health’s Dr. Kimberly Thompson, who discussed critical issues in the current Age of Risk Management, citing examples from public health and other areas.

“It was great to see such a large and diverse delegation,” noted Palisade President Sam McLafferty.  “All participants brought significant insights to the table.  The quality of discussion was exceptional.”

The widely-held view of the delegation was that the conference content was both high-caliber and practical.  According to delegate Robert Lake of Cisco Systems, “Palisade is leading the way with tools and expertise to enable risk managers across all industries.”  And Robert Nydick of Villanova University commented, “I found the conference quite informative and filled with useful information that I can incorporate into my classes immediately.”

The software-focused track was more popular than ever.  The soon-to-be-released @RISK 5.5 debuted to much enthusiasm, and many applications of DecisionTools Suite 5.0 products working together were shown.  Delegates were able to walk through examples and try the tools for themselves, enabling them to take some new tips back to their offices.

The conference wraps up Palisade’s 2008 conference series, which included events in London and Medellín, Colombia.
